looking after the neighbours' livestock

I went with Jack today while he fed the neighbours' animals. A male lamb had been born on about 24 Jun. It was resting while it's mother was being fed.

Sturgis is a lovely guy who does his best to makes sure the livestock is safe while the owners are away.

Twin lambs were born on 2 July. They were one day old in these photos.

A couple of Magpies always get some of Sturgis's dried food. They've learned that Sturgis loves his bone more than anything else and won't be distracted from it.

Across the fence the cows look on with interest.
